Scouting America: Rubio Rubin can be a versatile weapon for the U.S.

ESPN FC's Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman wrap up a tremendous year for the United States and wonder if 2015 will be a letdown.

After teenage forward Rubio Rubin made his United States debut in the recent friendly against Colombia, ESPN FC asked a scout who currently works for a Champions League club in one of Europe's top leagues (England, Spain, Italy or Germany) to assess the potential of the 18-year-old.

Here is his scouting report:

Strengths

"Rubin is technically gifted, smart, and physically capable of holding his own and put in a steady and mature performance against one of the world's best sides in Colombia. He showed...

Vacation homework for Jurgen Klinsmann and the United States

Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman discuss the United States' post-World Cup struggles following defeat vs. Republic of Ireland.

Dublin may not be a city that's renowned for its sobering experiences, but the 4-1 defeat suffered there by the United States at the hands of the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday comes fairly under that category.

The loss also brought into focus some clear areas to improve upon for the national team as it enters the hangover period of the winter break.

As Jurgen Klinsmann and his technical team look back on 2014 from a broader perspective, rather than focusing on the tactical idiosyncrasies...

CONCACAF Power Rankings: Costa Rica on top

United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann thinks his team need to get tougher following their 4-1 loss to Ireland in Dublin.

The 2014 international year is in the books and by the time the nations of CONCACAF resume action in March, the 2015 Gold Cup will be just a few months away.

Since the World Cup, several countries' performances have improved noticeably while others have declined. In the great spirit of the CONCACAF Hexagonal, it only makes sense for ESPN FC to debut its regional Power Rankings with its top six teams, plus a list of ones to watch come 2015.

After Ireland rout, U.S. veterans say team needs to regain their fight

Ireland handled matters quite easily in Aviva Stadium with a 4-1 win over the United States.

DUBLIN -- Even the eternally optimistic Jurgen Klinsmann struggled to find a silver lining after this one. There was just no sugarcoating it. The national team's 4-1, year-ending friendly loss to Ireland on Tuesday was ugly. The lopsided result here matched the worst of Klinsmann's three-plus years in charge, when the U.S. was routed by Brazil in May 2012.

Three Points: Ireland vs. United States

Ireland handled matters quite easily in Aviva Stadium with a 4-1 win over the United States.

The U.S. men's national team finished its 2014 schedule on a down note, falling to Ireland 4-1 in Dublin. After Anthony Pilkington's seventh-minute opener for the home side, Mix Diskerud equalized just six minutes before halftime following good work from Chris Wondolowski and Jozy Altidore. But Robbie Brady scored two second-half goals while substitute James McClean added another to turn a tight game into a rout.

Player Ratings: United States underwhelm in 4-1 loss to Ireland

DUBLIN -- A mostly successful 2014 ended on a sour note Tuesday for the U.S. national team as it dropped a 4-1 decision to Ireland. Mix Diskerud's goal just before halftime canceled out the hosts' early opener, but the visitors conceded three times after the break.
